Schwartz, Maurice
Maurice Schwartz, the greatest of all Tevyas, recreates his original stage role as the philosophical shtetl dairyman in viciously anti-Semitic Czarist Russia. Based on the Sholom Aleichem stories. A legend of the Yiddish Theater, Schwartz built the Yiddish Art Theater on Second Avenue (the building today houses the Village East Cinemas). “The authentic version of Fiddler on the Roof.” – Allen Lewis Rickman.
